  • No dogs are permitted at any facility at any time.
  • Flotation devices and ball playing are prohibited.
  • Alcohol is not permitted at any time.

Who may use the beaches?

Only Glen Cove residents may use Pryibil Beach and Crescent Beach. Residents of Glen Cove and Locust Valley may use Morgan Park. The beaches are monitored with beach gate attendants from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day. Attendants check for proof of residency. You must have your driver’s license and registration with you showing your Glen Cove address to be issued a beach permit.

When and where can I acquire a beach permit?

Beach permits are issued starting in late January.  They are available Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 5 pm. in the Parks and Recreation Department, City Hall Room 206.  Permits are also issued at the beach entrances, provided that your license and registration both have your Glen Cove address listed.  If this is not the case, you can obtain a permit at City Hall by presenting a utility bill (i.e., phone or gas bill) or your current lease or deed to your home, along with your driver’s license and registration.

Beach stickers must be affixed to your vehicle. The sticker is to be placed on the driver side back passenger window.  Stickers that are not adhered to your vehicle will be confiscated, as beach privileges are not transferable.

Transformation of Dennis Brian Murray Park

Dennis Brian Murray Park has undergone a major transformation! The former Leech Circle Park, perched on a wooded hillside overlooking downtown Glen Cove, was one of the most underutilized recreational facilities in the City of Glen Cove. In the fall of 2003, the park was formally rededicated as Dennis Brian Murray Park, named in honor of a young Glen Cove man killed in action during the Vietnam War.

Demolition of deteriorated playing courts began in late 2002. Despite being hampered to by an exceptionally rainy summer, construction of the first phase of the park was completed in September 2003.
